Grosjean is a muppet.

At least that's the fuel saving done, should see some good pace until the end now

Wake me up when Lewis has gone from F1 for good.

So the Merc is still by far the fastest car when it's out front it clear air, but we'll just ignore all that and make out it's down to the spoilt brat shall we?

Missed the whole thing as am away from home - & given the result couldn't care less.

However, have just been reading a piece about the Giro d'Italia. This is currently being led by a British rider who is not called Chris or Bradley. The interesting point is that one one stage, up Mt Etna IIRC, all the hard work was done by one of his team mates & when he could have taken the stage & a 10 second bonus, he opted to drop half a bike length back & let the other guy take it. There is a six second bonus for 2nd so he effectively gave away 4 seconds which might be very useful later on in the race.

Can anyone think of an F1 #1 driver who might be so generous to his #2 only 1/3 of the way through the season?

Nope, neither could I.

The cyclist is Simon Yates. A name to watch.
